Have questions on the fine details of your travels? If you don’t solve the mystery with the FAQ below feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What to bring.
A hat so you don’t burn your brain
Pack it all up in a soft duffel, just like the pros. If it fits the plane overhead bin, you are in the gold.
That about covers it. We’ve got everything else taken care of. Bring a book or a movie or whatever music you’d like. But we’ve got options there, too. (No death metal, please. It frightens the fish.)
What if I forget something?
If it’s something we don’t have, and we’ve got pretty much everything imaginable onboard, there’s plenty of places to stop and pick up necessities along the way. Unless you lost your passport. We can’t really help you there. But the silver lining is you’ll get to spend the rest of your days in the beautiful Caribbean!
What if I have a food allergy?
Let us know first thing and we can accommodate. Whatever it is. Shellfish, gluten, anything. Are you one of those people that thinks cilantro tastes like soap? What cilantro? (quietly throws it all overboard) Just please don’t be allergic to fun. That bums us out.
What to know if it’s your first time on a sailboat.
Umm… Well, a sailboat is powered by the wind. It’s got two engines, too. But we try to use those as little as possible. It’s more eco-friendly that way. Otherwise, you don’t really need to know anything else. That’s why the crew is there. They do the sailing. You do the enjoying. They also do the cooking and the cleaning and the “hey look, there’s dolphins” and the “can I make you another drink?” Everyone, both guests and crew, does the smiling. There’s lots of that.
What are the lyrics to that one sailing song?
Yeah, fine. We’ll play along. But please get these songs out of your system before you come aboard.
Do you mean Sailing by Christopher Cross? Here’s a sampling of the lyrics:
Well, it’s not far down to paradise, at least it’s not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away and find tranquility
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see.
It’s not far to never-never land, no reason to pretend
And if the wind is right you can find the joy of innocence again
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see.
Sailing takes me away to where I’ve always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free
Or did you mean Come Sail Away by Styx? Again, please do not bring these songs aboard.
I’m sailing away set an open course for the virgin sea
I’ve got to be free free to face the life that’s ahead of me
On board I’m the captain so climb aboard
We’ll search for tomorrow on every shore
And I’ll try oh Lord I’ll try to carry on
I look to the sea reflections in the waves spark my memory
Some happy some sad
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had
We live happily forever so the story goes
But somehow we missed out on that pot of gold
But we’ll try best that we can to carry on
A gathering of angels appeared above my head
They sang to me this song of hope and this is what they said
They said come sail away come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away come sail away
Come sail away with me
It pretty much goes on like that for another hour. You get the idea.
Again, we cannot stress enough that these songs are not allowed.
Score savings as big as a Jaguar Shark.
“Thanks again Kate and Cyrus for an amazing week cruising in the BVI we’ll never forget. Can’t recommend highly enough for families looking for a luxury holiday ‘out of the ordinary’. From jumping off the Willy T to swimming with turtles, every day was an adventure! Hopefully we’ll get to return soon.”Mike R. | Facebook ReviewEngland
“CruiseNautic is a Trip of a Lifetime!
If our family could give Kate and Cyrus (your CruiseNautic crew) a 6 out of 5 we would! Our family of 6 spent an incredible week with Kate and Cyrus and their puppy Coco over winter break cruising the BVIs.
Their Boat. It's an absolutely gorgeous brand new 42 foot catamaran with plenty of places to relax, soak up the sun, read a book and enjoy mealtime with the family.
The Food. Amazing! Kate and Cyrus provide 3 creative and delicious meals a day including Cyrus's special baked goods (breads, cookies, pies, muffins and more!).
The Service. Kate and Cyrus are so incredibly accommodating and never stopped asking if we needed or wanted anything. They make the Fours Seasons staff seem almost average.
The Trip. It was all expertly planned out and we felt so at ease with how professional and safe Kate and Cyrus are with the boat. They took us to such great spots where we could use the paddle boards, kayak and snorkel gear right from the boat.
If you've ever considered doing this type of trip, reach out to CruiseNautic, you won't be regret it.”Brian U. | Trip Advisor ReviewNorthbrook, Illinois
“Snorkeling, swimming and great food!Lorraine P. | Trip Advisor & Facebook ReviewHarrisville, Rhode Island
If you enjoy boating and water activities you should consider chartering a custom cruise with Kate and Cyrus @ CruiseNautic.com. They designed an itinerary specific to our group's interests and abilities. We relaxed as we sailed to tropical islands, swam snorkeled and kayaked in crystal clear aquamarine waters and visited unique island destinations.
Their catamaran was a beautiful new vessel with comfortable living spaces skillfully sailed by its owners.
Kate and Cyrus were wonderful hosts catering to our every need. Kate was constantly chopping fresh ingredients to make each meal an event. Cyrus wowed us nightly with his desserts.
We highly recommend chartering with CruiseNautic. It will be a vacation you will never forget!”
“Sailing with Kate and Cyrus was an incredibly memorable experience. Every night we enjoyed another bay to snorkel- kayak and enjoy an wonderful sunset, eating wholesome, freshly made delicious dinners.Rhonda K | Trip Advisor ReviewOakville, Ontario
Everything was fabulous and therefore there are no complaints.
You do want to be comfortable on the water, during our day excursions we had fun but at times we bounced around.
Would I do this again - absolutely- would I recommend to friends- I have many times already. We will defiantly catch up with Kate and Cyrus in a different location.”
“If you plan on sailing the British Virgin Islands and you DO NOT sail then CruiseNautic is the absolute best way to go!! Kate, Cyrus and their cutie dog Cocoa are a fabulous trio!!! They provided a fun, relaxing and safe itinerary for the 6 of us. My husband and I along with our 4 kids (17,17,15,14 yrs) had the most magnificent vacation. They were able to tailor the trip to our needs by providing a variety of activities (snorkeling, tubing, SUPing, kayaking, movie night and so much more). Both Kate and Cyrus are captains and chefs...there was never a lack of drinks nor food that’s for sure!! Wow can they cook!!!! This vacation has surpassed our expectations and we can’t wait to sail with CruiseNautic again!!!! I believe I forgot to mention they have a brand new luxurious catamaran!!! Extremely comfortable accommodations!!! We miss them already!! Definitely doing this again. ❤️Melissa U. | Facebook ReviewNorthbrook, Illinois
“I had a great time sailing with Kate and Cyrus 🙂 also really enjoyed the steak and the microbrew. Thanks you guys! Looking forward to more fun times like that in the future with you both.”Bob G. | Direct ReviewPrinceton, MN
“Their experience and expertise put my mind at so much ease and I had the most amazing time on their boat, being that I've never been on this kind of boat before. When it comes to hospitality and meals they are an A+ plus plus. The food was was amazing and I feel like I have lifelong friends now. I would definitely recommend them to all of my family and friends.”Jennell G. | Direct ReviewElk River, MN
